"This means, husbands, you hold your wife's needs above your own. Sadly this is not taught, in our churches."
"Wives submit yourself unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: & he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. Husbands, loves your wives, as Christ loved the church, & gave himself for it." Eph. 5;22-25"

"It's not difficult to obey a husband who is willing do die for you. He is commanded to love you. A wife is commanded to obey. We have the easier task, in my opinion."
"It is not just saying I love my wife it end here.Love must be expressed.The text above challenges husbands to love their wives.It says, the way christ loved the church.We need to ask ourselves,how did jesus loved the church?He died so that through that death the church (us)may be saved.It took love for this to take place,john 3:16.For God loved and then gave_that whoever believeth may be saved.Husbands are called by God to show this kind of love to their wives.It is death to self that men should practice.If this does not happen no true love will exist in the home.Husbands being the head of the wife and household,the law maker of his house_Ministry of Healing page 260,he should rule by example.He should make Jesu's kind of rulership the rule of the home.Women are a weak vessel_weaker emotions,compared to mens strong_emotions.You will also be amazed to discover that women do not understand or translate many things the way us men do.You will need to explain some things to your wife in a loving kind way,or she may not understand you well.Look at how Eve, wrongly understood what God said in Gen 3:3_compare 2:16,God never said that you should not touch the fruit.Women have never changed,they have their own way of understanding things in life.If yuo are not a patient loving man,you will always be fighting with your wife over money and many other things.This is why God calls husbands to love their wives.God is simply saying,guys,be kind to your wives,be pantient towards them and be honesty to her.This will create an atmosphere of being loved in a wife's life.She will feel loved.And then, be understanding and caring.When you are out,your wife will desire to have you back soon.When you enter your home,be smiling to your wife,if you dont take her in your arms, she may think that there is something wrong,maybe she is not wanted.Even when you are just tired.Men should avoid criticising their wives in the presence of their children.When a woman finds a home where she feels happy and loved,I tell you the truth she will respect you.The submmision of the wife that men want will be a voluntary thing.She will do that out of love.The secrect to have a wife submmit is to create a place where she is loved and is happy.If you want to eat nice and see how a woman give herself to a man,love her and be kind to her.The bible is correct_husbands love your wives_I say in the lord."

"Ephesians5:22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing."
"I love my husband ,He is the best husband in the world."
"Prospective husbands, if you start this endeavor, be prepared to learn what it means to SUFFER for Christ's sake. Because all the trials and tribulations you will surely suffer you will only have one way through to avoid the pit falls of this world and one voice to lead you; the voice of Christ. I admonish you to learn; eat, digest and embody the spirit, principals and precepts of how Christ loved the church. Then and only then will you be prepared to love a woman. They're like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get. God does have a sense of humor, he's going to lead you through but you have to be willing to go the distant with the one YOU choose. However like most of us you'll choose on the job training and my prayers will be with you."

"And yes the bible extorts wives to submit to their husbands but this verse is speaking to husbands. As husbands you are supposed to absorb and acknowledge the message. Can a man protest to be heard on a widely recognised women's day; no; that will be foolish. if he is wise he will wait for a better platform/day."
"Congratulations to all of you who have a wife. Love them like Christ love His church. Love them and be there for her."
"Ephesians 5:19-33 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. 22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband."

"What God tells us is that Women are to (( Honor and Obey )) their husbands.. And Men Are to (( Love and Protect ))..... THAT is the very subject that churches DO NOT want to preach on. And the people DO NOT want to hear..... Because in today's society women are told that they are equal to men and have equal rights. but that is not what the Bible says. They are to obey and follow the decision of their husband because he will protect them And have their best interest in his heart......... UNFORTUNATELY in today's society to many Men do not protector their wives instead they hurt them, And they do not love them as they should........ And too many women do not know their place in the marriage...... This corrupt society in which we live is the reason there's so many divorces........... YOU BELIEVE ( ALL ) OF THE BIBLE OR YOU BELIEVE ( NONE ) OF IT!!!!!!!! You do Not pick and chose what you like to hear..... Men need to start acting like Real Men Should--- And Women need to learn thier place and be obedient to their husbands..."
